Jacob Stein - My story

I am an Orthodox Jew and a computer programmer and I live in Wesley Hills, New York. I was raised as a non-practicing Lutheran by my adopted parents and I converted to Judaism at age 16. This blog as a rule follows the teachings of the Lithuanian rabbinical seminaries of the 1920s and 1930s.
